In the police complaint, the BCCL said two "exposes" by Republic TV displayed material, in the form of audio tapes of phone conversations, that was procured and accessed while Goswami and Prema were in the employment of Times Now. BCCL filed the complaint with the Azad Maidan police station here on Tuesday. BCCL is the media conglomerate that owns Times Now, which was earlier headed by Goswami as the Editor-in-Chief.
